Do you ever read online reviews when shopping around for items?

How big of a role do the reviews play in your desicion making?

I do read online reviews. If the majority of the reviews are 3 stars and under out of a 5 star rating system I won't buy something. If the majority are 4 and 5 star with a few 3 stars and under, I'll buy it unless another brand or similar item is rated better.

They play a large role.

I do look at reviews and take them into consideration. There is a toy DS wants for Christmas. It's a larger prices item and doesn't look like something he'd play with very long. I read the reviews last night and they were even worse than I thought they would be. It's not going to happen

Yes I do. Especially on toys. I need to know if they will withstand 3 kids playing with them. Sometimez I will look at reviews for clothes just to see if they are true to size.

I did. But they recently did a news story around here about how companies are paying people for positive reviews. Upwards of 30% of reviews have been paid for. So I gave up reading them. I want to know there are honest reviews,not something they paid someone for.

that is pretty much what I do too. but aver reading some of the reviews on toy products, I wonder about the people writing them lol

Quoting psych_mom:

I do read online reviews. If the majority of the reviews are 3 stars and under out of a 5 star rating system I won't buy something. If the majority are 4 and 5 star with a few 3 stars and under, I'll buy it unless another brand or similar item is rated better.
